INTERNS MAKE THE AAFF SMOOTH SAILING
Many, many thanks goes out to the Ann Arbor Film Festival interns. We are grateful for the major work done by our incredible intern team, who over the past 6-months have been vital in the production of the 54th Festival. Our interns are university students and recent grads who take the time out of their busy schedule to work behind-the-scenes at the Ann Arbor Film Festival office. Each day, our interns come to the office with a smile, ready to take on any and all tasks given to them. From sponsor and community partner support to digital media production and social media marketing, our interns make a valuable contribution in all areas of Festival production. After months of hard work, our interns are able to see the fruits of their labor, Festival Week.
Development intern Kyle Stefek says: "Festival week was really exciting—I got to spend more time with the other interns and experience a really amazing Ann Arbor tradition." To Kyle, working at the Ann Arbor Film Festival was "more than another bullet point on the resume." We were also thrilled to welcome (for the second year in a row) two interns who flew all the way from partnering institution Edge Hill University, in the UK, to help during Festival week! We cannot thank our interns enough for all of their hard work, dedication and positive energy!
